Representative Text

I BRING thee my cares and my sorrows,
I bring thee my doubts and my fears,
I bring thee the sins which have burdened my soul
And shadowed my path way for years.

Refrain:
O save me, dear Lord!
O save me, dear Lord!
O save me, dear Lord! I plead by thy mercy,
O save me, dear Lord!

2 O thou who doth know human frailties,
Prepare me for gain or for loss;
Though born of the dust, Lord, our Father art thou,
The builder of sun and the cross.

3 Forgive all my blindness and folly,
My prodigal wanderings and shame.
O heed now the outcrying pains of my heart!
I come as the prodigal came.

4 We thank thee we find in life’s wilderness
Established thy gardens of grace,
In temptation’s desert a cool shading rock,
In darkness the light of thy face.
